First-time cooking in an air fryer can be very intimidating for many of us. How many of you left yours in the box for days? Weeks?

Cooking times vary based on the size and quantity of foods in the air fryer and your desired degree of doneness. Meats depend on the thickness and desired doneness. It is wise to use a thermometer to check meats, open the air fryer to check on veggies visually, etc.
